Lemon Bread

Caren S.
This recipe was from my nutrition instructor when I was in nursing school. I had also given her one of my recipes. We kept in touch long after she retired. Whenever we made each other's recipe, we would call each other. I told her that many people had asked for the recipe. She was so happy that this, her mother's recipe would be passed on.
